  • Star turn - Roybal, Branch guide...

    Another year of North-South basketball and football is in the books, and this year, things held to form as the North swept to twin victories on the hardwood before the South took care of business on the gridiron.

    NORTH GIRLS 105, SOUTH 42

    As she returned to the floor of the Wilson Complex — her home for years as head coach of the New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls — Cindy Roybal had some old friends nearby to support her in what could’ve been the final game of an illustrious career.

  • Train Robbers grab first in...

    Look out. Here come the Train Robbers.

    A huge series win for the Las Vegas Train Robbers over Pecos League North Division rival Trinidad has given the Robbers the coveted top spot in the division.

    Will Walsh smashed two home runs and finished 3 for 6 with five runs batted during Las Vegas’ 13-5 romp at Trinidad on Thursday night.

    Ryan Lauer added a three-run homer and a solo bomb to help Atsushi Hebisawa record his fifth win of the summer.
